Allergy Free Wednesday ~ March 14, 2012

Allergy Free Recipes

Greetings, great readers!

You may have noticed that I changed things up a bit yesterday by taking a hiatus from Traditional Tuesdays.

In the interest of trying something new, I’m trying out a new focus, on Allergy Friendly Foods with Allergy Friendly Wednesdays (AFW).

I’d love to hear your thoughts on what you think of this new Blog Hop!

Please know that I thought about this for quite awhile.  I spent a lot of time checking links on AFW to make sure that there were very few processed food entries.

This past week, there were only 5 out of about 90.  Not bad.

What to do if you see processed foods and don’t want them?:

So—-welcome to Allergy-Free Wednesdays (AFW).  AFW is a weekly blog hop where folks can share their allergy-free cuisine, gain knowledge about allergy-related topics/issues, and connect with others living or caring for someone with food allergies.

Your weekly submissions will be shared on 7 blogs!  Additionally, each hostess will feature a favorite recipe(s) from the week before.  Please visit each blog to see their features!  Your hostesses are:

    Speak Your Mind


  1. Thanks Adrienne,

    We haven’t had him checked for individual nuts. In fact he hasn’t been tested for nuts. He had a very, very bad reaction after eating cashews at the age of 3. The doctor didn’t want to push it. He was shown to have mild allergies to nightshades and soy, but I think he has outgrown those two. I didn’t think of pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds. He will be so happy that he can try baklava (homemade of course)now. Maybe it is time to take him back and get him tested again, it has been 10 years now.

    Thanks for responding. Love the blog.


    • You’re welcome. I would also think about sesame. It’s worth finding out to give him more options. Thanks for your kind words! Hope to see you around again!

  2. Adrienne,

    I apologize I thought this was your usual link up. If you can, delete the Salmon cakes as they are not allergy free. I tried to, but it would not work. I will have pick another recipe.

    Dr. Lisa

    • Hi Lisa – I don’t see your salmon cakes, but I’d love to. They don’t need to be totally allergy free – do they have dairy? I don’t see it on other hosts’ sites either?? Let me know or please add it or something else again!

  3. Ok weird, the links are showing up now… Must be on my end. :-/

    • No – something is going on on my end. Trying to sort it out. I think it’s something to do w/ wordpress, but it never happened to me w/ my previous blog hop. Working on it and thanks for sharing!

  4. Didn’t get a chance to post a comment before when I shared my recipe for Spaghetti with fresh tomato sauce. Came back to do that, and check out some of the other links, but they’re gone. What happened?

  5. Thanks for hosting. I shared a beef recipe that is quick and easy and I think I shared a post about the incredible healthy benefits of apple cider vinegar, but it is not showing up… Not sure 🙂
    Anyway, have a great day.

    • Maybe you could try again? There were some issues w/ the linky and I’m puzzled. It vanished suddenly last night. ???

  6. I would love to have nut-free recipes. My son and I are allergic to tree nuts and we also have a hard time with peanuts because of cross-contamination. I am also looking for nut substitutions for texture. Thank you in advance. I will post some of my traditional food recipes that I learned from my Mum.

    Debbie B

    • Hello Debbie! Every one of my recipe is adaptable for nut free. I keep homemade nut and seed butters in my fridge at all times so I can interchange. My son can only have almonds and macadamias. Just out of curiosity – have you been tested for individual nuts? For years my son was off all nuts until his allergist had the wisdom to try some and he is able to eat these. We are going to run tests again soon to see if perhaps Brazils can be added to the mix.

      Take care! Oh -if you use pumpkin and sunflower seeds you will get pretty good texture. Let me know if that helps!

  7. Adrienne, thanks for getting it fixed so fast!
    I’m sharing a very simple nut-dried fruit bar-type recipe, with dried nettles added to up the nutrition and minerals (nettles I harvested and dried myself!

    • Your recipes are so inventive! Love it!

      • You said it wasn’t showing up–sorry! I did post it, but maybe I need to try again. I’m on a different computer with a terrible connection but I’ll see what I can do…

        • I think it’s there now – my browser was having issues and when there were 70+ up I could only see 36! Go figure!

  8. How weird! I saw all the linkup links before I commented and now it’s disappeared! So maybe tomorrow?

  9. Awesome! I love this idea! I’ll share something for sure. Probably something simple this first time.

  10. We’d like to share our recipe for broccoli and beef poutine made with *fermented french fries* and chili ginger soy sauce gravy:

    We’d also like to share our raw milk cheesecake with a salted chocolate sablé crust and cherry compote:

    Last but not least, our wonderfully cheesy carnitas soft tacos with avocado and pickled ginger carrots:


    • Nice! Thanks for sharing! My family is BIG hockey fans and we’ve heard about poutine! Now I need to try it!

  11. I will definitely be linking up with this – but for now I’m just going to read and get more ideas!!
